Be Bevelled / Connect Locally

Long ago Samuel Wan was talking about some component for the different kind of bevels and about 48 hours ago, he have it on his site and you can download them, including the demo files and the component. Also, check his second post about his downloadable demo on local connection. You can view a similar example of the local connect, here which you can send and receive information both ways from either of the Flash documents.

Periodic Table of Flash Sites

I found some referer on my web log from Flashzoom and so I went there to see if I could see my site anywhere being linked. But I could not find one, after searching and roaming around a bit, I saw the ‘periodic table of flash’ where my site ‘Br’ was included in the table.

Flash Tools

A tool for Flash, that is what Flash-tools is, where you can find flashmail, flashforum, flashmp3player, flashmysql and yes a flashblog too. It have a good feature of letting you know at what stage its development of a particular project is using a visual indication of its stage from research, development, alpha, beta and to its release. You can join the mailing list if you wish, you may add your link and it also collects RSS feeds from some of the most prominent sites like, waxpraxis, philterdesign, samuel wan, flashguru, illogicz, actionscript, pnuts thoughts, k10k and web standards.

IE 5.0 + full Screen from itself

Have the folllowing Javascript

function fullscreen(){
 var hdiff;

and on your link put a href=""javascript:fullscreen();"

DMX & inc files

I was surprised when I cannot have a design view of my include files [ .inc ] in Dreamweaver MX, so I went to ask on our Jordan’s Dreamweaver list at Blueworld and I got a part of my answer to exclude .inc from the Edit > Preference > File Type/ Editors and Open in Code view text field.
Well, to make things work, you have to edit the “MMDocumentTypes.xml” to include your .inc file in the range of those html,htm,xhtml and the other extensions. “MMDocumentTypes.xml” is located at Dreamweaver MX folder\Configuration\DocumentTypes.

Local Connection

You must have heard of the localConnection thingy, I have nothing to this Sunday and tried my hand on it, I started off simple, you may view it here or just download the whole source file.
